Home 5 News 5 Support our newest project TackleLondon!

Exciting news!

Today sees the launch of TackleLondon, our sports mentoring initiative in partnership with star* scheme and The Matt Ratana Rugby Foundation.

The new programme is a natural development of our existing work. It will empower young Londoners to achieve their potential, progressing from adversity to opportunity.

Recognition and approval by the Mayor of London’s New Deal for Young People funding scheme is a significant launchpad. The support received will enable TackleLondon to grow, facilitating positive change for more young people in more neighbourhoods.

Working with schools to identify those students who would benefit most, TackleLondon will deliver regular coaching and mentoring sessions. The provision of a consistent pathway through to engagement with community rugby clubs is a vital element of the programme.

Please follow and support us at www.tacklelondon.org and on social media.
